Sunday starts off dry, sunny as heat settles in quickly

Rain chances ramp up to 40% by Sunday afternoon

Sunday's high temperature will be near 93 degrees in Central Florida.

ORLANDO, Fla. – A few showers are possible before midnight, but they will be very isolated, with most cities remaining dry.

Clouds will linger with lows settling in the mid- to upper 70s.

As we head into Sunday, it starts off dry and sunny. The heat settles in quickly, reaching the low 90s but feeling like the triple digits again.

By Sunday afternoon, the rain chances ramp up to 40%. Showers will begin closer to I-95 and then move toward the west. As the movement progresses westward, the coverage and intensity will increase, as well.

Rain chances near the coast will be between 20% and 30%, but the day won't be a washout for beachgoers. Just keep an eye to the sky for storm development.

Inland zones remain slightly higher in the rain chance category, near 40%-50%. Storms that fire up will be pack a punch, possibly producing strong winds and even some small hail. Most of the rain will fade away by night.

The upcoming workweek looks the same until midweek. A weak front will stall to our north and bring changes to our rain pattern. Rain later in the workweek will favor the coast versus interior cities. Highs stay in the low 90s.

Tropical update

Wind shear and Saharan dust are keeping the tropical Atlantic in check for now. No development is expected within the next five days.
